    This has to be a mistake....we went from 31st last year to 6th this year....Pittsburgh was 6th and is now 2nd...they moved up 4 spots while we moved up 25 spots. Same with Green Bay. If they mean most improved by change in rank we still hould have the MIC. :confused: :mad:

    Hornswaggled?

    :yell:
    Looking at all the reference material below, the MIC should've moved off of us MUCH earlier if it was based on total clicks and not change in overall position. WE improved by about 34 or 35,000 clicks from 2004. Pittsburgh improved by almost 190,000. When they hit 80,000 votes, they should've had the MIC credited to them at that point since they were more than 35,000 votes ahead of last year. If they had, we wouldn't of had that false sense of security regarding the MIC. I'm a little irritated at that because the results seem to have been "adjusted" at the last minute.

    First are the 2005 results from

    "...With over 155,000 clicks registered, the Packers far outpaced the second-place team, the Philadelphia Eagles, who registered more than 110,000.

    It's the third year in a row the Packers have captured the 'Click for Cans' contest. ..."

    ================

    Not sure how valid the below link is, but after reading it I'm a little concerned.
    http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/charity/campbells.asp

    If they're just donating returns, well...they should be doing that anyway.

    OK...all that above said, I hope they do donate all those cans to help the needy. We also now have a reference to work off of for next year (this thread) if we want to really work this.

    I think this about to start up again. So, we should start voting if we want to have a chance against the voting machines.
